Our History

Ewing-Schutte-Semler Funeral Home began providing the families of Sedalia, Pettis County and surrounding areas with compassionate, caring and quality funeral services in 1935.

Duane and Beulah Ewing in the early years lived above the funeral home just like so many other owners did.

Later on the Ewings moved to Green Ridge, Missouri southwest of Sedalia about 10 miles where they began living on a farm.

Duane not only wanted to provide affordable funeral services for the Sedalia and Pettis County area, but he also loved working on his farm.
Beulah enjoyed raising horses and won several awards showing them at are Missouri State Fair here in Sedalia.

The Ewings sold the funeral home in 1981. Both of them died shortly thereafter. In 1987, the Ewing's contribution enabled to establish what became the Ewing Vocational Center for people with developmental disabilities. The center has several employees that perform various jobs. The building also has the administrative offices for the Center For Human Services.

In the early '90s, Dennis (Denny) Schutte came to work at the funeral home as a funeral director and embalmer after serving on the Sedalia Police Department and Pettis County Sheriffs Department as the chief deputy. In October 2002 Denny became manager.

With 23 years experience as a funeral director and embalmer in Sedalia, Warren Semler joined Denny and the name changed to Ewing-Schutte-Semler Funeral Home in May 2003. After Denny's untimely death in 2007, Warren assumed the position of manager.
